Patriotism and Production
The Call of the Empire to the
Farmers of Canada
Public Meeting in Edison Theatre
Saturday March 6th
"Approximately twenty million men
have been mobilized in Europe. A
large proportion of these have been
withdrawn from the farms of the
countries at war. Even in neutral
countries large numbers of food producers have been called from the land
to be ready for emergencies. It is
difficult for ub to realize what will toe
the effect on food production through
the withdrawal of several million
men from all the great agricultural
countries of Europe. These millions
cease to be producers, they have become destroyers of food."—Hon,
Martin Burrell, Minister 0l Agriculture.
Britain must have food—food this
year, and food next year. Britain ia
looking to Canada to supply most of
ibat food. We are sending our surplus now, I but we must prepare for a
larger surplus this year and next
year. Patriotism and Production
must go hand in hand.
Because of this need of the Empire
for more food, and the call to Canada in that need, the Canad'an Department ot Agriculture has arranged for a series cl.' Conferences throughout the Dominion, with the object of
giving suggestion aa to the best ways
cf increasing production of the particular products needed at thia time.
At these Conferences agricultural specialists, who have studied agricultural conditions and production throughout the world, and the best means of
increasing agricultural production in
Canada, will give valuable in.'orma-
tion and suggestions to the farmers,
live-stock men, dairymen, poultry-
men, vegetable growers, and other
producers of thla country. Ihi Canadian Department of Agriculture
urges you to attend as many of
these Conferences as possible; also to
watch for o'.hsr information on the
subject that will be given in other
announcements in, thiB newspaper.
The Government does not ask farmers to work harder, so much as it
urges them to'make tbeir work more
productive, and to produce those staple food 3 that tbe Empire most needs
and tbat can be most easily stored
and transported.
Europe, and particularly Britain,
will need the following staple fcols
from Canada more than ever before:
Wheat, oats, corn, beans, peas.
Beef, mutton, bactn, and bam.
Cheese and butter.
Poultry and eggs.
Vegetables,    such as potatoes,   onions, and turnips.
Tbe larger the yield of these staple
food products, tbe greater tbe service to the Empire. Germany in the
last ten yearB has doubled the average yield of the majority o° her field
crops largely through better seed,
thorough cultivation and use o! fertilizer. But in making your p'anB,
don't let your enthusiasm and loyalty make you attempt more than you
can carry through. Million; of bushels, instead ot million.; ol acres,
should be the aim ol Canadian (armors, And while tha Empire's armies
are busy putting d >wn German Militarism, let us at home appropriate
the beBt ot Germany's agricultural
methods for the Empire's advantage.
I The conference in Cranbrook, which
is one of the 20 being held throughout the province commencing on Feb.
22 and under the auspices ot the Dominion department of agriculture
which is inaugurating a campaign
which extends over the entire Dominion to assist Canadian agriculturists, stock-breeders and all others interested directly or indirectly in the
productiveness of the soil in providing for such returns in 1915 as the
world's markets will most demand,
will be held on Saturday, March u,
in the Edison theatre at 8 o'clock in
the evening. Announcement to this
effect wa3 made yesterday by W. V.
Jackson of the provincial live stock
branch, who is visiting the district
arranging the details of itinerary.
Regarding the conference and the
campaign which is being earried on
throughout the country, Mr. Jackson
yesterday pointed out the position of
the Dominion department of agriculture as follows:
"Patriotism and production," is
the slogan adopted by the Canadian
department of agriculture in the work
undertaken. On the first point those
who meet the farmers no doubt will
explain that the success of the Empire in ths tremendous military task
uow before it depends to a large extent on the continued ability to feed
tbe men who are risking their lives
in the Iin? of battle for their country. Canada's immense agricultural
resources will be taxed to the utmost. The boast that she is the
"Granary of the Empire" will be put
to the literal test. It will be argued
that those staying at home to till
the coil should cultivate that which
will be most wanted by Eait Kitchener in his efforts to keep tha millions
soon to'be in the field provided with
substantial food. This is the "patriotic" viewpoint expressed briefly.
The "practical" mission is not aa
eaaily expla'ned. For weeks the agricultural department has been making
use of the government's resources to
obtain accurate, general and statistical information for their speakers,
thus materially augmenting their own
jpcrsemi expert knowledge. They are
expected to inform the farmer in each
district having regard to the nature
of tbe soil of that particular part of
the country, what he should grow
largest quantities of in order to best
help his country in the present cri-
uis. And in this instance, it is worth
noting that personal and public interests go hand in hand for it is reasonable to suppose that lf the farmer produces much of whit    ls most
| needed, he is yo'ng to be the most
Under tha circumstances it is believed that all ifarmers within reasonable dlBtance will make a strong
effort to bo present.   Owing to   Sat-
' urday, March nth, being market day
it is presumed tbat a large ntriber of
I the farmers will remain In town for
this conference. It is thought that
it is a duty they owe not only to
themselves but to their country. The
interior itinerary includes:
Grand Forks, March 8; Nelson,
March 4; Creston, March 5; Cran-

Honor to the Boys
In a short time we are to bid goodbye and God's speed to another of
those noble contingents who have responded bo generously to the call of
the Empire. Cranbrook is most
loyal, and It Ib not too much to Bay
that for her size has contributed
more generously in men than any other city in the Domin'on df Canada.
If more are needed then more will
follow. There will be quite a lot ot
disappointed volunteers in the city
left behind who, if needed, will ai
only too ready to say, "Here I am,
take me."   Honor to them.
This contingent is receiving _ partial training at home, every day they
have their routine marches and irills
which will stand them in good steal
when they reach the general encampment. They are a fine lot of men
of whom we can all be proud and
when the day of departure comes it
will be a send-off that will not b; behind any of the previous ovations
that have been given the former con-
t'n?enta. Given an opportunity wj-
believe they will aoqjult themselves ts
noble representatives of a noble Empire.

Increase in Tariff
Word has been sent out this week
to a!l inland revenue departments
tbat hotels, clubs and wholesale
houses throughout the country must
immediately secure stamps to eover
the wines they now have in stock.
The tax is five cents on a quart or
less of non-sparkling wines and twenty-five cents a pint or less on champagne and sparkling wines.
The stamps are now to be bad at
the inland revenue office and failure
to procure them is punishable by a
severe penalty.
The new tariff is ". per cent, on
foreign produce and 5 per cent, on
preferential in addition to that already carried.
The above change in tariff is date A
from February 12th.
Ottawa, Feb. 12.—As the debate on
the address will occupy some time
and the new special taxes, apart
from the tax on champagne, do i not
come into effect until atter tbe tariff
bill is passed, the peotle wlll have
ample opportunity to prepare themselves for their new burdens. The
tariff increases, of course, come into
effect at once. The administration of
the stamp taxes will be under .9

21st YEAR CRANBROOK, B.C February 20, 1015
No. 8
Unless the assistance that has been
promised us for some time does not
get a move on and do something very
quick this will be the last issue of
the Prospector until circumstances
warrant us to publish again. The office will always be open to do job
commercial printing 0n the excellent
standard it has endeavored to do in
the past.
Since the year 1915 opened we reduced the size of our paper to assist
us in reducing the cost of production but the lack of advertising,
which is the life blood ot all newspapers, has been curtailed to such an
extent by the merchants of Cranbroo'' and others that our chief
source of revenue has .been practically cut Off. We are no: possessed of
unlimited revenue, nor have we private means to fall back upon, consequently when the publijh'ng of our
weekly paper showed signs of it not
being able t0 Pay for itself we decided to c'.O'e it down until conditions
warrant its publication again.
We have debts to pay—what business hasn't'.'—and we should be glad
if those who are indebted to us in
any way will toe tbe mark anl send
in their cheque covering the same. If
our customers will do this we can
pay our little debts and so assist
others to avoid the step wc havejtteen
forced to take.
*        .        A        *
In aiuther part of this issue we
call attention to "Thc Call of the
Empire to the Farmers of Canada."
In this article it is urged that the
farmers of the country do their duty
to their fcllowmen in a practical way.
It is mt possible for everyone of us
to go to the Ifront nor would such a
step on the part of all be considered
wise, it would be a foolish policy.
The men in the fighting line who are
hourly giving their life's blood that
we might be immune from the horrors of war must bo fed. The
places they held in the indtJitrial
sphere cannot be filled entirely, but
those who perforce through one circumstance or another must remain
at home can so unite their forces in
a common cause as to assist in bringing victory to our nation nni keep
nlive th; inlustrial interests throughout the Empire.
Another contingent is called for and
another is found ready. Crarfhrook is
pnswering nobly to the call for men.
This will be the third lot that has
left th? city in a body since the European war began. Cranbroo'; is loyal, Cranbroo't citizens are sincere.
Never in the nnmls of any country has
there been seen such enthusiasm exhibited as during the last few months
in the British Empire. Every corner
of the Empire has contributed its
quota Of men, ready to be np and do;
All h inor to the men for the olcr-
ing anl in thought wc go with them,
but the sympathy of the nation is
With the mothers, wives nnd daughters who nre ma'clng the grentest sacrifices nn(i suffering jointly with the
women <)' tho beleaguered countries
now devastated with the horrors of
this tremendous war being waged
across tbe birring pond. Almost every home Iiiih its representative in
the  ranks,   "(Oi'.'.'h  son,   duke's son,

i arising as one to put down a common
enemy and the resources ol the
Hritisb nation are only beginning to
be touched,   What will the end be?
Meeting of Farmers'
At a meeting of the Farmers' institute on Saturday A. B. Smith presided over about 50 farmers and others, lhe committee appointed to interview the express agent regarding
opening on Saturday mornings re-
I orted that the office was always
open except during the time when the
agent was at lunch, or, as on Sat-
| urdays, when he had to visit the
bank.. They considered that no blame
attach?d to him. A motion accept-
, ing the report of the committee was
: passed. The secretary reported that
he was wa ting an answer from the
department regarding killing of cattle on the railways and bo had not
taken further action in the matter.
It was decided to have a register prepared showing the stock, crops, etc.
that each farmer had so that it
would bo on hand for reference when
inquiries were made for various farm
products. Discussion of a P'an for a
farmers' evening school where an agricultural course could be taken, covering farm carpentry, care of farm,
machinery, live stock lectures, crop
discussions, farm arithmetic and
book-keeping, milk testing, etc., was
deferred to the next meeting.
The committee was instructed to
get quotations for Burbank White
and Carmen's No. l seed potatoes.
Over 30 entries were taken for the
field crop compcition?. The following resolutions were passed:
1. That it is desirable that separate homestead inspectors be appointed for East and West Kootenay
end that copies of the resolution be
sent to the agricultural department
and t0 the Conservative association.
-'. That steps be taken to bave a
crop convention at Cranbroo't on
March 0 as one is to be held at
Crcsto.i on March S,' J
.1.   That    a    letter be Bent to the;
Conservative association urging it to '
get   the   member for Cranbrook   to
support  legislation  for the compulsory stamping of eggs with the place
of production and the date.
R. T. Williams gave a paper on
the co-operative marketing of eggB.
Ho showed that such a system benefited tho producer by evening tho
priccB a little tho year round, how lt
increased thc quantity and quality of
the product in the district and haw
several other th'ngs ol great interest to producers could be workod In
witb thc scheeme. After a short discussion it wbb laid over so as to allow Mr. Rlvc, the live stocl'i commissioner, to speak on the milk and
creamery question. A lively discussion folowed. The result was that
the matter of co-opcrntion nlong the
linn wns laid over ns the district is
not quite strong enough to support
n creamery, Mr. Rive pointed out
tint unless enough milk or cream
could be regularly received a venture in that, direction would bc sure
tO fail.   Ho urged those present to go
further into the livestock question as
that was Ihe most certain and safe
branch of the farmers' work, (Jran-
bi'oo'.i needed moro clearing, more
fodder crops nnd then with additional dairying cattlo a creamery would
be quite a  safe investment.
Special meetings of the Farmers'
institute will be held on Saturday,
February 37, in the old gymnasium.
Meetings will be freeito alii:
I p.m.—Mr. Upton, of tho poultry
department will demonstrate the killing and preparation of fowls for market.
8 p. m.—Mr. Hopkins of tha live
stock branch will spin'; on "Livestock," followed by Mr. Upton on
pensation, namely, $1800 to the dependents of 57 deceased miners, and
it is the opinion of the officials of
the union that this number will be
brought up to 00.
Thirty-two of the deceased men
were Austrians. Their rights have
boen acknowledged by the company
but no compensation will be paid
their dependents who reside in Austria until peace has been declared between Austria and Great Britain.
This month will be noted for the
peculiar fact that no full moon Willi
occur in it. February is the only
month in which such a lack can ever
occur, and ikio was the last year
with n moonless February.
Profcspor    Jacoby,     of    Columbia
University,    says   full moon3   follow
one another at intervals    of    about
,.,,.. ,        itwenty-nine and one-half days,    and
Miss    Helen    Harrison,     secretary- ...    ,, . .      „    ...
 ,_  *, thus it can happen occasionally that
February, ,with its twenty-ei^ht days,
hasn't time for a new moon to become full. Thero were ' <• ull moons
last month, and there will be two
next month.
Ambulance Assn. to
Furnish Hospital
Damages for Death of
a Logger
Tha Court of Review, sitting in the
        city of Quebec, has rendered a   deci-
the Order to provide   and' sion   to the effect that lumbering   is
for service abroad   or   at | really in the nature of an   industrial
treasurer of the Crnnbrook branch of
the St. John Ambulance Association,
is jn receipt of the following letter
from thc provincial headquarters at
\ ancouvcr:
February o, 1015.
"The Grand Priory of the
Ordsr of the Hospital of St.
John of Jerusalem ta England, of
which you have the honor of being a
member or associate, has forwarded
a circu'.ar letter saying that the
Army Council has approved of an offer from
home, for a period of not less than
six months, a'fully equipped General!
Hospital of 525 beds, to be designated as "Tha St. John Airfbulance Brigade Hospital."
Sir Herbert Perrott, Secretary of
tbe General Council of the Order,
states that the probable cost of each
bed wlll be £100 for the ytar, and
expresses the hope that all members
of tbe Order and associates will, by
personal contributions and otherwise,
make the Hospital a complete success.
Any person contributing Ssoo.oo
would have a bed bearing his or her
name. Any town or city raising that
sum could have a bed dedicated to
them, or the Province as a whole
may contribute sufficient to have one
or more beds known as the British
Columbia beds.
"There are ovor 2,000 Certificate

and men ifacturin» operation, and is
consequently subject to the Quebec
Industrial Accidents Act.
Mr. Lavoie, a logger, returning to
the camp on a dark and rainy night,
after hiB day's work, came to a river
H6 feet wide, where the bridge had
been carried away by the high water
durin* the day. "Searchers" sent
from tho camp, having seen him,
threw a tree across thc i river so as to
form a bridge, as is customary under
sudh circumstances. Lavoie attempted to crosB, but the tree brohe down
and Lavoie was carried away by the
swift current and drowned. His widow took1 ian action against the lumber company by which he was employed, claiming $8,025 damages for
his death. The Lower Court dismissed the action on the following
grounds: (1) Because the accident
occurred through the gross carelessness of the deceased; (2) because the
butes Si.oo or more, according to his 'accident did not occur in the   course
means, a hendsome sum could be realized for this laudable purpose. He
would have the privilege, at
small cost, of contributing to the
welfare of those who have bravely
gone to the front. We expect that
our Canadians will soon be in the
firing line, and no doubt many of
them will be wounded, and it will be
a satisfaction to know that we are
helping in no small way to relieve
their suffering. We have no doubt
that each one of you will make a
contribution which will ensile us to
equip at least four beds for this
worthy object.
"We would request, therefore, that
you send a contribution without delay to the Secretary of your centre,
who will in turn forward it to the
Honorary Secretary 0f tho B.C.Council. It is hoicd lhat all contributions will be in before February 28,
Contributions may be sent to Miss
Harrison, Box 101, Cr n'irook, who
will forward them to Vancouver.
Undor the Alberta Workmen's Compensation act the Hillcrest collieries
will pay over to tho dependents of
the miners who lost their lives in thc
Hillcrest mlno on Juno ll last approximately $350,000,
Tho    agreement between the   com-
of or resulting from hfs work; and
(8) because the victim of the acci-
a very jdrnt was not, on account of his work,
a workman subject to tbe Industrial
Accidents Act.
The evidence submitted showed that
all tho customary precautions had
been ta'en to take Lavoie safely
across the river, and that neither he
nor the "searchers" were at fault on
that account. As to the second
point, thc Court held that the time
occupied by an employee in returning t0 camp after his day;s work, instead of sleeping in the woods, was
part'of his work within the meaning
of thc Act, as tho lumber company,
as tiara', was providing a camp
where all its employees were fed and
housed for tho night. As to thc third
point, the Court held that, although
some parts of thc lumbering indusM
su h as cutting down and h ml ng tbe
trees, are in the nature of an agricultural operation, logging end sawing, or preparing tho lumber for use
change tho nature of the o^rntion,
which then becomes industrial and
manufacturing. Such was thc case in
Ln- o'e's case, and the accident of
which he was the victim was cne to
which tho Inlustrial Accidents Act
npplied. The dscenscd workman's widow was consequently entitled to an
nlemn'ty in n sum equal to four
times his average yearly earnings.
Judgment was therefore entered tor
$3,000 damages nnd $2.". fo- funeral
expenses, and tho company sentenced
puny and the representatives of tho to pay snid sum with interest and all
United Mine Workers of America pro- costs. (Tremblny v. Dale Sn'nt-Paul
